Brett was born and educated in Auckland, New Zealand and spent the early part of his career working on small to medium residential, industrial, and commercial projects across Auckland & the North Island.  His experience in larger scale complex projects began in the healthcare sector with Chow:Hill Architects.  During an expansion period in hospital development Brett gained valuable knowledge in construction methodology and design development.  He also came to understand the importance of accurately gathering and understanding the clients’ functional needs to achieve the best possible outcome for end users.


Brett’s ability to balance diverse client requirements alongside regulations and practicality developed further when he moved the London in 2001.  Here he was fortunate to work on a diverse range of high profile projects including numerous NHS & private hospitals, Lord’s Cricket Ground, and the University of Liverpool’s Centre for Biosciences. 


Since 2006 Brett has lived and worked on the Sunshine Coast.  Along with raising a family and enjoying the Coast lifestyle Brett has continued his professional development in the local architectural industry.  In particular Brett has sought to develop meaningful and productive relationships with clients, consultants, and colleagues to achieve quality architectural outcomes and an enjoyable professional environment.


Brett is a dedicated husband, and father to two sons.  He enjoys music, soccer, & playing guitar.
